Idlib Militants Violate Deconfliction Agreement: Aleppo City Is Shelled

Illustrative image

On September 26, unknown militants launch several rockets from the opposition-held areas in northwestern Syria at the district of Halab al-Jadidah in the western part of the city of Aleppo, according to Syrian pro-government sources.

The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reporter in Aleppo said that one of the rockets injured a civilian and damaged several buildings and cars in the district.

No group has claimed responsibility for this attack so far. However, pro-government activists believe that the rockets were launched by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) or the Turkish backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) because they both have positions in western Aleppo.

The attack is a violation of the Russian-Turkish deconfliction agreement on the governorate of Idlib, which was reached on September 17. Under the agreement, a 15-20km demilitarized zone should be established around Idlib, therefore in western Aleppo, before October 10.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Russian Aerospace Forces will likely respond to the rocket attack in the upcoming hours in order to deter the militants in western Aleppo.

    bs agreement from starters..u folks will all see ….war between turkey and SAA and hezbollah is enevitable, no matter what….listen to the 2 most importatnt players of this equation and not some bs fairty tales..
    erdogan ” assad and his regime have no future in syria” 25.09.2018
    assad “turkey has invaded our country, we will not negociate with them.they will leave by their own, or we will force them” 2.09.2018

    In that sense…I believe that the S-300 delivery to syria by russia, is a deterrent against erdogan and not so much against israel.
    but we will all see by october when this agreement of a buffer zone will not be reached, what the reaction of turkey and russia will be.Will turkey seriously attack their islamiist brothers??hahaha
    will russia attack turkeys allied islamists?
    lets see how this plays out….right now, it looks as if turkey has levarage over russia because of the southern nato front against russia in which turkey plays a major strategic role.So if russia wants to pull turkey away from this front, russia will have to pay a high prize.Afrin and idlib, defacto belongs to turkey.This again will not be tolerated by the assad regime.Till now….who knows what special agreeents in the background there are between syria,hez , russia and iran.But like i said….we will see in october how this all plays out, including the more and more openly agressive stance og the usa towards syria and iran.

      Fair points. But in my opinion, what a politician or ruler says in the microphone of journalists, has little or no connection to what they or others will do afterwards.

      I mean of course for example Assad says something like that, what else should he? „I am fine with them occupying the north of my country.“?

    Send this to putin – you damage your good name tolerating terrorists you were killing.
